On October 8, the Maharashtra unit of Congress slammed Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat over his claims that the organisation had nothing do with lynchings and there was no economic slowdown in the country.

Congress State spokesperson Sachin Sawant said in a statement that those involved in incidents of lynching came from the RSS ideology.

It is as much a lie to say that RSS has nothing to do with lynchings as it is a lie to say that RSS is a cultural organisation, is anti-casteist, pro-reservation and respects the Constitution and tricolour," Sawant said.

He also added that spreading falsehood has been the ideology of the Sangh Parivar.

Addressing the RSS's Vijayadashmi rally in Nagpur on October 8 morning, Bhagwat said it was wrong to use the term lynching in the Indian context. The term was being used to defame the country, he claimed.

Bhagwat also said that there was no recession as the country's economy was growing at a rate of five per cent.
